Hong Kong marital woes...

Actor Nicholas Tse confirmed Sunday that there are problems in his marriage with fellow entertainer Cecilia Cheung and said he doesn't know "what the next step is."

Speculation about the Hong Kong film industry power couple has dominated headlines in the Chinese entertainment media in recent weeks.

News of the troubled marriage surfaced after Hong Kong's Apple Daily newspaper reported last month that Cheung had reconciled with Canadian-Chinese singer Edison Chen. Chen fell from grace after racy photos of him and eight female stars, including Cheung, were leaked onto the Internet in 2008.


Life imitates art...

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz, who play husband and wife in an upcoming film, have taken the roles to heart.

Robin Baun of Slate PR, which represents Craig, said Saturday that the actor and Weisz have married. She did not offer any details.

The British actors had been quietly dating. The wedding previously was reported by the British newspaper News of the World.

Craig is the latest James Bond and will star in "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." Weisz won an Academy Award for "The Constant Gardener" and starred in "The Mummy."

They co-star as a married couple in the unreleased film "Dream House."


Tribute to Michael...

Jermaine Jackson performed a nostalgic tribute concert Friday to his late brother, Michael Jackson, to mark the second anniversary of the pop star's death as part of the 12th International Indian Film Academy festivities in Toronto.

Dressed in a Michael Jackson-inspired outfit, complete with a red military-style jacket, V-neck white shirt, fitted black slacks and a black cummerbund with an emblazoned number "5," the former Jackson 5 performer sang a medley of his brother's hits, including "Scream," "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin' " and "Can You Feel It."

"This is a special moment in the show because it's a tribute to my brother," Jackson said moments before joining Indian singer Sonu Nigam to perform "This Is It," a song written by Nigam after the megastar's death, which the singers dedicated to the pop icon.

The two performed at IIFA Rocks, a Bollywood-inspired concert and fashion show bonanza that is part of the academy's three days of film, song and dance that culminates in Saturday night's awards ceremony, often referred to as the Indian Oscars.


Voice on 'The Voice'...

Miranda Lambert is stepping into new husband Blake Shelton's TV territory.

On Wednesday's season finale of NBC's "The Voice," Lambert will perform a duet with a finalist from Shelton's team, Dia Frampton.

Lambert, a Grammy winner for her single "The House That Built Me," said she was "thrilled" to be part of "The Voice."

She said she's a bit jealous of her husband's role as a coach on the hit singing contest, which also features Christina Aguilera, Maroon 5's Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green.
